Hello Hello!
I am here with another cool family interior. Times three. Three kids rooms, one as fun as the other plus one fantastic ‘sleepover’ fortress to host little guests.

This modern farmhouse is situated in upstate New York and full of unexpected pops of colour and patterns. And it is really great to see how each kids room has its own personality and colour scheme. Lets open the door to some punchy colours, bold, funky wallpapers as well as traditional elements.

A very charming mishmash of styles:

I assume that we are looking at a family with 2 boys and one girl.  The boys’ rooms are very geographic and the little girl is living a pink dream with one striking wallpaper. (from Pierre Frey called Otomi)

And because of the three little ones, everything in the home has a very practical component too. Each surface was protected with hard-to-damage natural materials or coated in exterior-grade fabrics to avoid stress about spills or messes.  So clever and really something to keep in mind for future projects!

And they seem to have many sleepovers too…

At least this is how I see this room. To host little friends. Because I am counting 6 beds in here. And since each child has a bed in their own room this must be the sleepover haven. So cool! Each guest gets a little built-in shelf too to put down their important belongings.

And those bathrooms. That shower (which seems to be the size of our family bathroom here) is so fun. With a ‘real’ door and a bench inside. I am sold.

Talk about an entrance…

What do you think about this place? Nice place to spend weekends and holidays isn’t?

Enchanting family apartment in a lush neighbourhood

Enchanting family apartment

Interior Tuesday and we are visiting this beautiful family apartment in the heart of Stockholm. I was instantly drawn to the wonderful mix of modern, original features and vintage.

And it has a lush perspective too, because the apartment has a direct exit to an amazing courtyard!

Situated in the neighbourhood of Vasatan in Stockholm, this place is fantastic for families. Parks, shops, close to the center and full of life.

We can find the typical deep window sills (I miss them!), original windows, high ceilings, high floor sills and great wooden floors.

Let’s have a look around:

My favourite is the kitchen and I love that it is an open floor plan. Lots of light, and such a tasteful and very modern kitchen. The washed walls, colours of the cabinets, and that large dining table right by the window. Love it!

The whole place was renovated in 2015 with new electricity, a new floor plan, and the even raised the ceiling. Put great colours on all the walls, installed that stunning kitchen, and now it is on the market…

Can you see that the window sills are so deep, that you can actually use them as a desk?

And it is Stockholm…

If you are not planning to move there, you should absolutely go and visit. Especially during this time of the year… going through the Archipelago, strolling the streets, and enjoying the special Scandinavian light and air. It is special and beautiful!

Have a lovely day and if you would like to see more places from Stockholm how about this Vintage family haven or this charming place with lots of great ideas to take away.

Beautiful turn-of-the-century family apartment with a romantic touch

stockholm family apartment.

Hej! How are you? How about a little trip to Stockholm? I would not mind so much because I hear it is 23 and sunny. Compared to London where I am sitting behind my desk and faced with a sky that gets darker by the second…

(but I am not complaining because I am headed to Florence tomorrow and the forecast is 32)

But for now, lets stick with Stockholm and this gorgeous and very big family apartment which is in the perfect location. Which also means that it was just recently sold for a big load of money.

Look at this beautiful turn-of-the-century property, where beautiful original features meet modern touches. The great architect Andreas Gustaf Sällström actually used to live in this particular apartment.

And the ceilings are not just high, they are sky high and measure 3.10m. Probably I would feel quite small in there for once…

A very romantic children’s room that is definitely bigger than most. The details on the ceiling and above the door are adding to the sweet factor too of course!

The room even has a sofa, a big kid friendly table and lots of space for free play, dance, creativity and fun!

Wow!

A charming family apartment in Paris

family apartment in Paris

We are back. After a little hick up yesterday I am back and I am so excited to share this charming family apartment in Paris with you.

Patrice, owner of the shoe brand Feiyue, and Laetitia’s, who is a clothing designer, beautiful old apartment hides behind an anonymous facade in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. An area I have lived during some of my Paris years too!

Patrice is a trained architect and the couple met in China for the first time. They were both on a business trip. Now they have their base in Paris and their little son Yume joined the family since then as well.

The couple opened up the hallway to create a large modern family kitchen. Totally understandable and so useful, especially for a family. I love kitchens and it is always a priority when house hunting, because there needs to be enough space for everyone and lots of cooking, activities and entertaining!

And the mix of modern and the traditional Parisian flair is lovely with these magnificent old fireplaces, large beautiful windows, and lovely old wooden floors. See for yourself:

Such a cosy spot inside that cool tipi… and I love to see a bit of Amsterdam in Paris…

Things: Tipi*, rug*, Amsterdam house wardrobe!

Yume owns a couple of super-cool vehicles. Having this ‘mattress haven’ adds a lot of calm to the room! And they become practical when it is sleepover time too.

Things: Yellow chair*, skateboard* and a selection of mattresses*.

And I love those inserted windows that you can find in a lot of places in Paris. They let in so much light that it is even worth to have a little less privacy in your bathroom (I am sure there is a little toilet for guests somewhere in the apartment too).

Gorgeous place and I will leave you with it for today. Because next week I will be off for my first trade show of the season and before that we have a busy weekend to squeeze in including a birthday party!

See you tomorrow!

6 Nursery Decorating Tips All New Parents Need To Know

nursery

There is an endless array of decisions that come with raising a tiny and delicate child. Though some of these decisions can be very hard and difficult, one of them is quite easy and fun. This is the decision of designing and decorating the nursery.

Any couple who puts a lot of effort into the design and décor of their house can’t neglect their baby’s nursery. There are many ways to decorate a nursery. Here is a list of some tips that every parent must know when they are decorating their child’s nursery:

 

Use Blackout Curtains

Many people use amazing curtains that are made of light fabric in the nursery. These curtains may look great for the time being, but when you try to put your child to sleep, they can be a great hindrance. You should make sure that the lighting of your nursery can always mimic nighttime. Therefore you should invest some heavy curtains that can block a lot of light or a window shade.
The minds of babies are wired to sleep better at night, and newborn children have to sleep for a long time. And when it’s time for a nap during the day, the light from outside can be a real problem. So, make sure that you are able to control the lighting of your room to ensure a peaceful and relaxing sleep for your child. You can also opt for a two-layer curtain with one layer. This is very elegant and compliments the design of the room and another layer of blackout curtains that you can use at nap time.

Extra tip: Natural light from the sun is also good for babies so don’t keep them in the dark all the time. Instead, you should take them out in the natural light for the wire when they are awake. All in all, the two-layer curtain system is the best to control lighting in the room.

Buy a Crib That Matches Your Nursery’s Décor

There are many cribs available in the market. Some are quite simple and bland, but there are others which are quite elegant and beautifully designed. The crib is the main focal point of a nursery, and the design of the crib can significantly improve the décor of the whole room. So, chose an elegantly designed crib according to the colors and theme of the nursery to make the room pop. The right kind of bedding for the crib is also very important. The bedding should be of good quality, and it should be according to the design of the rest of the room. Try to get bedding in a color that is easy to clean.

Design the Changing Station Correctly

We all know that babies come with dirty diapers. There is no way to avoid it. This experience can be made pleasant by making sure that your changing station is designed correctly. And that all the essentials of cleaning up and changing your child are near you and can be reached easily by hand.
Firstly, you need to make a choice of where you want to set up the changing station. You can either get a separate changing table or you can get a simple changing pad that can be added on the top of a dresser for example. It all depends on how much space you have. The best thing about opting for a changing pad on a dresser is that when the child grows the dresser can be repurposed.
Add bins and baskets close to the changing stations to dispose of the dirty diapers and clothes. And have a shelf or a drawer that has all the other changing essentials like clean diapers, wipes, lotion and a change of clothes. If you are using a separate changing table, make sure to keep the dresser close by so that you have quick access to the child’s clothes.

Tip: Keep some toys nearby so that the child has something to play with while you are doing your business.

Use Washable Wallpaper

Sometimes things get dirty while cleaning up a baby and for situations when the walls get dirty, you should have washable wallpaper. So that you don’t have to worry about stains and dirt staying on the wall.

Introduce Some Rugs & Chairs To The Décor

It is very important to add chairs and a rug to the nursery. There should be a chair for the parents where they can hold and feed their child comfortably. Make sure that the chairs match the theme and design of the rest of the room.
You can also add some amazing rugs and carpeting to the room to make it more comfortable. Sisal rugs are a very common design element these days, and they can make the room look more elegant instantly. These rugs are also quite durable and comfortable to sit on, and they are made from organic materials, making them an environment-friendly choice.

Incorporate Some Artwork in the Design

Adding some artwork to any room can instantly make it more elegant and classy. You should do the same with your child’s nursery. You should set a theme for your nursery and add artwork that goes with the theme.
A quite common theme that is getting quite popular among parents recently is the nature theme. This is great for the child, and it makes the room very soothing and comfortable. The color green is known to have a very calming effect on people so it is very good for a nursery and you can add paintings and other artwork that is also nature inspired to make an amazing nursery for your baby.

Have a wonderful day!
